Composite Materials: Introduction

The most important topics related to manufacturing, materials, processes, design, testing, sustainability, and certification.

In today’s industry, fiber reinforced thermosets and thermoplastics play an important role in the production and engineering, covering new applications.

To promote the well-thought use of these composite materials, the book in front of you intends to provide an introductory course to composites and is supported by the Dutch Association for Composites in the Netherlands (VKCN).

This book aims to provide basic knowledge to any technical Bachelor-level student, in aeronautical and mechanical engineering, civil engineering and architecture, technical business studies, etc.

On basalt materials application as protective means for weapons, military and special equipment

Based on the tests, basalt woven materials show similar results to aramid and hybrid ones but the monolayer costs 9-10 times less compared to the aramid also basalt fabric offers better fire and thermal resistance. Calculations and experimental data lead to the conclusion that basalt materials application for the protection of ground, naval and air equipment is promising.
